Watch the replay here.
Good leadership is crucial to building trust in a society. This means competent governance, effective policymaking, and informed, honest and sensible judgement. The advent of rapid-fire communications, rushed news cycles and pervasive social media have ushered in what has been called a "post-truth” world, with money politics, tribalism, increasing inequality, and the rise of populist movements leading to a severe breakdown in civility, community and the capacity for reform. The deadly and destructive invasion of the US Capitol by rioters was the latest example of the dire consequences of a crisis of confidence. In this webinar, AsiaGlobal Fellows will discuss the global trust deficit and the challenge that leaders face in a time of truth decay – What does good leadership mean when the spread of fake news, conspiracy theories, alternative facts and outright lies breeds suspicion, cynicism, irrationality and even violence?
